Bob Welch helped bridge the blues rock side of Fleetwood Mac to the pop sound that propelled Mac to even more incredible heights they would scale in the mid 70's.
Bob Welch was with Fleetwood Mac from 1971 to 1974. After leaving, he
formed the rock group Paris, but when that group’s two albums had
limited success, he went out on his own.
Bob's solo version of “Sentimental Lady” — on which Christine McVie and Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac provided backing vocals (it had earlier been recorded by the band) — was a Top 10 hit in 1977. His “Ebony Eyes” reached No. 14 on the Billboard singles chart the next year. He had a total of four Top 40 singles between 1977 and 1979.
